The New York Knicks have done a lot of traveling over the past two weeks. They get to return home to Madison Square Garden for a Sunday matinee showing against the Detroit Pistons.

Why Detroit Will Win

This is not high-stakes poker, but NBA basketball can throw in a surprising equivalent of a river card every now and then. You don't know when or where or how an upset will occur, but it crops up from time to time and ambushes not just the losing team, but the community of basketball pundits. The Detroit Pistons might have only two wins to their credit in the 2012-2013 season, but both of them were wins that came from nowhere.

Detroit didn't just beat the Philadelphia 76ers in Philadelphia for their first win of the season. They won convincingly. On a night when Detroit played with a consistent energy level, Philadelphia lacked clarity and purpose in its halfcourt sets. The Sixers ran around like chickens with their heads cut off, scrambling and darting just for the sake of moving, and not with the aim or intent of doing something productive on a possession.

Detroit's second win of the season was also rather stunning in the sense that it was hard to anticipate. The Pistons once again won big, clocking the credentialed Boston Celtics by 20 points, 103-83. Detroit – which has been so noticeably subpar through its first 12 games of the season – played aberrationally well while Boston stunk up the joint. These nights happen in the NBA. Multiple thousands of games are played each season (with every league team playing 82 games), so outliers can and do (and will) crop up. Detroit could find one of these gems again.

Why New York Will Win

When the best online betting sites size up this game, they won't have to come up with overly complex reasons for a Knick victory: Simply stated, New York is simply a strong team.

The Knicks play cohesive halfcourt offense and – in the real surprise from the first three and a half weeks of the season – defend with far more seamlessness and effectiveness than they did last season. New York superstar Carmelo Anthony is putting forth more effort at the defensive end of the floor. He is leading by example and setting a better tone on each game night. Point guard Raymond Felton is prying open opportunities for his teammates to score. Felton's quickness is causing defenses to over-rotate and leave the Knicks' perimeter shooters open. The chemistry on this team is excellent. Head coach Mike Woodson is getting his guys to play with a five-as-one mentality. There is a blended, integrated quality to the way in which the Knicks are playing. If this modus operandi can be sustained, the Knicks will become a legitimate NBA title contender, a worthy foe for the Miami Heat.

Who Will Win

This is a totally one-sided matchup. The Knicks should destroy the Pistons. It would be a shocker if this game involved a final margin that's lower than seven points. Realistically, New York should win by at least 15 if it plays anywhere close to the full range of its capabilities.
